Coconut Oil Cognitive Enhancement
I began a coconut oil experiment last week. I'm taking at least 2 tablespoons per day (Usually more). I wanted a control test to see if my cognitive abilities increased and decided on Sudoku since I have an electronic version, which I have a year history with. I chose easy (vanilla) level, to be able to do more games for more test points. I'm on test point 14 right now, and do realized that it may still not be statistically significant. However, I reduced my best score from 5:34 seconds to 4:16 seconds and have reduced my average time from 7:58 seconds to 6:03 seconds (a 24% improvement in both areas). My IQ as a child was around 121, but has decreased (probably due to improved, less biased testing) to around 117. I'm considering trying to run some IQ tests as well, to log any improvements. Has anyone else had the same type of success with coconut oil, and do you have other ways I can measure to see if this is real or a placebo effect?
